Benefits should be withheld when recipients are fraudsters and when recipients do not take any or any significant steps in their lives to try to come off benefits when the possibility to do so exists. Only the most needy people, people who clearly need ongoing help (mentally ill etc.), should continue receiving long-term benefits.
When benefits are withheld, throwing needy people off welfare, a vicious circle of human destruction develops. Individuals who lose their eligibility for food and health care benefits, still get hungry and sick. These people, who already know that they are despised, will come to realize that they have absolutely nothing left to lose.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
